SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KWWL) -

A Major League Baseball pitcher, who grew up in eastern Iowa, is going from one coast to another.

Multiple reports this morning say Colin Rea, who's from Cascade, has been traded from San Diego to Miami.

Rea has started 18 games this season, going 5-5 with a 4.98 ERA.

He can now pitch for a team fighting for a spot in the playoffs.  The Marlins are 55-47 and in the hunt for a Wild Card spot.  They play in Chicago at Wrigley Field next week.
